Hezbollah Secretary General Syed Hasan Nasrallah on Friday announced that â€œthe party is working for consensus in Beirut as to the municipal elections, and up till now, it hasnâ€™t taken a final decision as to engaging in Beirutâ€™s electoral battle.â€
Syed Nasrallah added that Hezbollah will take the appropriate decision after concluding the exerted efforts to achieve consensus.
According to Shiite News Correspondent,Â During a ceremony to honor the members of the Islamic Resistance Support Organization, his eminence called for â€œkeeping the resistance away from the municipal elections,â€ stressing that â€œthose who donâ€™t join the Hezbollah-AMAL consensus electoral lists are not against the resistance and they have the right to run for municipal elections.â€
Concerning the Israeli threats and US-Israeli claims about Scud missiles, the Hezbollah Secretary General said that â€œthe Israeli and U.S. remarks about transferring Scud missiles to Hezbollah aim at pressuring the resistance forces and the defiance nations and at waging an intimidation campaign, not more,â€ ruling out â€œthe eruption of a war in the region in the current period because there are no political objectives to be achieved (by Israel) through war.â€
Syed Nasrallah stressed that the resistance party â€œhas the right to possess any weapon, but its policy implies that it abstains from denying or confirming any information about the type of weapons it has; and if someone announced that Hezbollah has nuclear weapons, Hezbollah would not deny that.â€
